How brilliant - combining compassionate communication with food and eating. Eat by Choice, not by Habit is a winner. Brilliant!
—Yours Truly, Christiane Northrup, M.D.

Refresh your relationship with your body and food. With compassion as your ally, you can learn how to:

  • Cut through cycles of over-consumption and dieting.

  • Enjoy power with food rather than battling eating patterns that seem to have power over you.

  • Transform eating habits into choices that meet your needs, leading to greater personal freedom.

  • Enjoy eating to meet both the needs of your body and your desire for deeply satisfying culinary delights.

Let the question and answer format of Eat by Choice lead you on a journey to discover solutions that work for you. You can listen to the book in order or go right to the questions that speak to you. Those who have read the book say they experience a deeper sense of clarity just from hearing the book read aloud. With sound dietary information and the consciousness of Nonviolent Communication to support you, you have the opportunity to befriend your body and food, moment by moment, today and everyday.

I have been studying NVC for 6 months or so and this book was the portal that I needed. I never really got it before this book! I had a major aha! —Valerie

In addition to recording the complete book, the author includes bonus questions and answers about nutrition, health, and NVC.

I read it last night and it is great!  Kudos for putting together such a clear message about food and compassion.  Mirasol Eating Disorders Clinic should buy one for each of their clients as a welcoming gift! —Penny
